We all probably have a few or more of these floating around in some closet in our homes. Some probably more than others if you frequently have items dry cleaned (btw – you can always return the hangers to the dry cleaner and they can reuse or recycle them). There are actually a lot of different craft ideas out there to make with wire hangers and this is just one.
But while I was at the gym the other day I was reading an article on re-purposing household items in the August 2009 issue of Woman's Day and they described making a marshmallow stick out of a wire coat hanger, but you can also find directions here.
The only difference was that the WD article had one additional tip and that was to use a discarded wine cork on the end to provide you protection from the heat.
I was thinking of making a couple of these to go along with the firestarters I made. Maybe even throw in a bag of marshmallows. It could be a whole themed gift package. :)
